Summer Plans

I've been so busy trying to finish 5 assignments in 1 month, totaling to 13,000 words!!! It's almost the total word count for my dissertation. Last semester, I was the non-African expert on ECOWAS (Economic Community Of West African States) and it's a new semester and I haven't forgotten my Asian roots and most of my work this semester is on the LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Elaam)

Anyways, I've applied for a Summer School Programme in Korea since February and for month, I've been waiting for an answer (patiently!) and I kept praying over. Prior to meeting John, I technically prayed for wealth and my dog... So, this time, I really bowed my head, clasp my hands together and pray.

The most wonderful thing about praying is?
Matthew 21:22 "If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayers"
Mathew 7:7 "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you"
Psalm 37:4 "Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart"

If I could ask HIM one question, I would ask him, "Why is HE so nice to me?" I've done a lot of things I'm not proud of and I'm unlike most Christians, even now, I'm still doing things I'm not proud of and why, why must HE be so nice to me?

He has given me EVERYTHING I asked for, and I'm grateful. I have nothing that I want anymore. I just want everyone around me to be happy, healthy and safe. He saved me from death 3 years ago, created a MA in IR course for me last year and HE has always blessed me with jobs and I've never had financial issues, matched me with The BF that loves me more than himself and lastly, the most wonderful parents any child could ever wish for.

On the other note, I will be spending the summer in Korea teaching English to elementary school kids and enjoying the hustle and bustle of gorgeous Korea! I've never been to Korea and I'm closer to my dreams of visiting the whole of South East Asia by the time I turn 25.

For the summer, I will be in Hannam University in Daejeon City, South Korea!!!! All thanks to the grace and mercy of God. HIS mercy and grace overwhelms me. On one hand, I'm super duper stoked to be able to travel (Haven't been travelling out of MY and SG since I started my MA) and I'm also sad because I'll miss The Guinea Pigs, The Cocker Spaniel, The Familia, and The BF.

For now, have to settle visa, flights and to renew my passport. But now, back to assignments. 3 down, 2 more to go... Till the next time.
